The Sovereign Republic of Sireco is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by First Consul Janus with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, unlimited-speed roads, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 14.007 billion Sirecans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Liberius. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Sirecan economy, worth a remarkable 2,908 trillion sovereigns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 207,617 sovereigns, with the richest citizens earning 8.8 times as much as the poorest.

One year's corporation tax from three international megacorporations has funded one dozen shiny black pencils for First Consul Janus's office, nuclear reactors are held together with party string and Hubba Bubba, politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, and economists claim no news is good news. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sireco's national animal is the golden eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is the Sovereign Church of Sireco.

Sireco is ranked 2,685th in the world and 156th in Lazarus for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 15,317.68 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
